Robinsons Lists

Address Robinson List check

The Robinson List check tests whether teh address provided is registered in Robinson Lists.

Syntax …/svc/2.0/address/robinsonlist/<address>
Example …/svc/2.0/address/robinsonlist/foo@bar.com
Parameter An ASCII email address as last part of the URL

Result

<robinsonlistStatus>
    <infoIds>
        <infoId>ecg-liste</infoId>
    </infoIds>
    <result>1</result>
</robinsonlistStatus>

or

{"infoIds": ["ecg-liste"], "result": 1}

The service looks for typical naming patterns in different parts of the address and returns the sum. The result document contains:

  • result: the evaluation result
    • 0: address is not part of any of the configured Robinson lists
    • 1: address is part of at least one of the configured Robinson lists
  • infoIds: if the result is > 0, this contains IDs for looking up more information about a Robinson resource.

Functionality

The service encrypts the email address and tests the result against the contents of the configured data sources. If there is a match it returns a positive result and the resource IDs of the lists that matched.

Each execution of the check will be documented as a business event (database table business_event) with type 104.
